2. The Calgary Flames need to name a new Captain
After the departure of Mark Giordano and the emergence of Darryl Sutter as the teams Head Coach once again, the Calgary Flames refused to name a captain for the 2021/22 and 2022/23 season, but it became clear throughout last season that this team needed a unified leader to bridge the gap between players and coach.
When a new Head Coach is named, this should be first on their priority list, and with the likes of Jonathan Huberdeau, Rasmus Andersson and the favourite Mikael Backlund all pushing for the spot, there are plenty of options.
Whoever it turns out to be, this is a talented Flames squad, and with a new, unified leader in the locker room and a Coach that (hopefully) fosters a positive, winning environment in the locker room, this should be a move to help the team in a big way.
